Barclays issued a detailed report on CMGE on April 3, 2014. CMGE is given an Overweight rating and a 12-month price target of US$32, given its: 1) leading position in integrated mobile games publishing and development; 2) extensive and diversified games portfolio; and 3) multifaceted publishing channels/platforms. We expect potential share price catalysts from: 1) overseas expansion initiatives; 2) the traction and revenue opportunity from 51PK.com; and 3) the rising penetration of its Game Center app via MediaTek's handsets. Our US$32 price target is based on 15x our 2015E non-GAAP EPADS of US$2.13, implying a PEG ratio of 0.19x, which we believe is reasonable considering the hit-or-miss nature of new games' success, the shorter life cycle of mobile games, and potential execution risks.
Barclays believes that CMGE's integrated publishing and self-development model leads to a more diversified game portfolio and lower concentration of revenues compared to its peers. CMGE operates a total of 717 game titles, with 72 social games and 645 single player games as of end-2013. It plans to launch c50 new social games in 2014, 15 of which are to be self-developed. The contribution of social games to CMGE's revenue increased from 17.6% in 2012 to 63% in 2013.
